Sama (, Persian and - samā‘) is a Sufi ceremony performed as dhikr. Sama means "listening", while dhikr means "remembrance".

The song was performed first on the night, preceding Ireland's Eddie Friel with " Dreamin'". At the close of voting, it had received 15 points, placing 18th in a field of 23.
The song's performance was conducted by long-standing Irish Eurovision conductor Noel Kelehan.
It was succeeded as Polish representative at the 1996 contest by Kasia Kowalska with " Chcę znać swój grzech...".
